Frequently Asked Questions

Why CAS Families?

We truly believe in the well-being of our future, that is, our children and better adult/child relationships. When adults understand a child's developmental stage, they can better understand their behaviour and learn how to respond to a child more effectively.

What CAS Families is not:

CAS Families is not a type of therapy, but rather, a service in which you work with a certified educator who supports you in managing the typical challenges that may arise throughout your parenting journey whilst taking care of your children. You are given evidence-based and helpful information, taught positive and conscious parenting principles and effective parenting tools, and are assisted in implementing these strategies into your lives. All advice is unique and personalized according to your family's/profession's needs. In some instances, we may refer you to some more intensive support or therapy. 

What does CAS Families have to offer?

Through CAS Families, we are focused on you becoming the parent you want to be for your children. Our role is to provide education, support and assistance as well as encouragement as you implement the tools and techniques into your home/profession. While our experience and education provide us with an expertise in this area, you remain the expert on your child. We will work as a team to find the solutions that work for you and your family. Apart from consults and support plans, as a paying "client" you can also become a member and enjoy access to all the resources in the Member Vault which includes articles, videos and printables. CAS Families also offers additional services, so please feel free to browse all services and products.

If I'm not ready to become a member, is there another way to gain access to resources?

Yes, you can subscribe to the mailing list for all the free resources, or you can visit the online store to purchase items individually.

Is CAS Families for you?

If you are feeling exhausted, hopeless, confused and are at your wits end about how to manage your child's behaviour, developmental issues, and the challenging aspects of parenting, CAS Families may be the answer you are looking for! You may be looking for assistance in a specific struggle, or you may be looking for assistance on a broad spectrum of challenges. Parenting can be overwhelming, the information out there even more so, so we narrow it all down for you, ensuring simpler, easier and calmer households to ensure you are the parent/professional that you would like to be.

CAS Families is not for you if you believe that traditional discipline methods work, if you believe that children don't deserve respect and if you believe that an authoritarian approach is the only way.

What types of concerns can be addressed?

The below may be some challenges you have, but are not limited to:

  • routines and transitions

  • sleep struggles

  • homework challenges, routine and assistance

  • tantrums / non-compliance and discipline

  • power struggles

  • sibling relationships

  • nutrition

  • responding to your child's emotions

  • behaviour challenges

  • developmental challenges

  • communication challenges

  • effective discipline

  • potty progress

  • coparenting

  • learning difficulties

Is CAS Families limited to parents?

No, CAS Families provides support not only parents, but grandparents, foster parents, guardians, childminders, nannies, au pairs, caregivers and professionals.

What is the cost?

Costs are noted in the support plans and information booklets on the services pages. We also realize that the cost may not always be affordable to all, and we are committed to helping parents and caregivers/professionals be successful and confident in their parenting/careers to build invaluable relationships with children, therefore we are willing to work with you to make it possible by means of payment plans etc.

Does CAS Families have any limitations with regards to getting support?

Absolutely not. We offer one-on-one consultations, online consultations or phone consultations depending on your geographical area as well as your personal limitations. 

Any other questions?

Please contact us should you have any other queries not yet addressed on the website.
